Trip Introduction:
We had a few days of rain at the start, but then had good weather. The black flies were out but not oppressive. We traveled through Polly, Malberg, Adams, Boulder, Fee, Little Saganaga, Elton, Makwa, Kivaniva, Malberg, Polly. We saw very few people from Boulder through Kivaniva. Most people could do this route in 6-7 days, but for two sixty-something guys, 12 days allowed us a more leisurely pace. Be sure to keep your eyes open for a guest appearance by a fellow'er :-)
